Yet another reason why Macs need security software | Security - CNET News - 0 views

  •  
    According to the X-Force 2008 Trend & Risk Report (PDF) released early this year, Mac OS X Server and Mac OS X top the list of operating systems with the most disclosed vulnerabilities for 2008. Each accounts for 14.3 percent, and has been in the top five in each of the last three years. Rounding out the top five were: Linux Kernel at 10.9 percent, Sun Solaris at 7.3 percent, and Microsoft Windows XP at 5.5 percent. The purpose of this data is to compare the total number of disclosed vulnerabilities with each individual operating system. Vulnerability data is submitted to the Mitre Corp. and then appears in the CVE (Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures) List.

Apple security: Myth or magic? -- Government Computer News - 0 views

  •  
    Ultimately, I was foiled by the security features of the Mac. I found that SSH attempted to log me in as the account owner of the Mac itself, rather than letting me to supply my own log-in name and associated password. In effect, I couldn't log on as anyone except the owner of the Mac account, at least by default. Because I didn't have an account on that Mac and my friend with the Mac didn't have an account on my Linux box, I couldn't log in.

  •  
    Macs are joining the "Borg" collective zombie botnet.
  •  
    Macs have achieve sufficient market-share that they are beginning to be hacked and pulled into the botnet "collective". So, even if Mac OS X security is generally better than that of other OSes all of us Mac users should be as cautious about downloaded software as we advise the PC users to be.

Their report starts by posing a series of questions about business benefit. They found that when pressed, business users were hard put to come up with anything other than woolly answers.
